"...a market economy is essentially a genetic algorithm for solving resource allocation problems..."
This forgotten gem of a novel from the 1960's makes good use of a machine that unerringly tells whether or not the person believes what he or she is saying. The notion of dealing truthfully with yourself and your society is an important theme in the novel, and is an important idea for us in our world today.
Would you behave differently if you knew that, at need, you could be veridicated? Would you live your entire life differently, if you knew that people could tell, without fail, whether or not you believed what you said? I think that the author believed that a life lived truthfully was a better life, and a more sentient, more civilized life.
